Plot: What’s it about?
Cyber Sunday is perhaps the most unique annual event from World Wrestling Entertainment. The rest of the year, fans just watch the action and cheer on their favorites, but for Cyber Sunday, the fans take control of the show. The fans are given the chance to vote on the matches, such as who gets a title shot or what kind of stipulations are enforced. In 2007, the fans spoke and WWE delivered, as the return of Stone Cold Steve Austin unfolded, as he served as special guest referee for the World Heavyweight Championship match between Batista and Undertaker. Cyber Sunday also allowed bitter rivals CM Punk and The Miz to clash over ECW gold, while Randy Orton and Shawn Michaels would square off again, with the WWE Championship on the line. The fans voted for Rey Mysterio and Finlay to compete in a stretcher match, while Triple H and Umaga were thrown into a street fight. The fans were given the power and Cyber Sunday 2007 gave them just what they asked for.
1. Randy Orton vs. Shawn Michaels (WWE Championship)
2. CM Punk vs. The Miz (ECW Championship)
3. Batista vs. Undertaker (World Heavyweight Championship with special guest referee Stone Cold Steve Austin)
4. Rey Mysterio vs. Finlay (Stretcher Match)
5. MVP vs. Kane (United States Championship)
6. Triple H vs. Umaga (Street Fight)
7. Mr. Kennedy vs. Jeff Hardy
Video: How does it look?
The show is presented in full frame, as intended. This looks great, even better than broadcast on pay-per-view. The image is bright and clean, with the only real trouble being a few compression errors here and there. The in-ring action is well lit and the pyrotechnics really shine, thanks to WWE’s usual high end production values. I saw no issues with color or contrast here, this is a great looking show and fans should be more than satisfied.
Audio: How does it sound?
The Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack is very impressive, with a good range and enough power to make you feel every impact. The entrance music and pyrotechnics sound great here, so the atmosphere is immersive when the superstars walk down the aisle. The crowd is loud, but varies in volume, as should be expected from a live audience, of course. As far as the action inside the squared circle, the stiff clotheslines sound crisp, the powerful slams are well handled, and you can hear all the smack talk you can handle.
